2013 and Beyond

As the year comes to a close, we rewind the tape a bit and reflect on everything that has happened in this past year, and begin looking forward to the year to come...and beyond.

ComingSoon has our first look at the three announced Pixar films that will follow after Monsters University this June, and I must say, it is quite thrilling to finally get a sense of what these films will look like.

The first image is concept art from Bob Peterson's The Good Dinosaur, which shows a boy sitting on a giant dino's head with a bright yellow sky in the background. It sure looks like Peterson is cooking up quite the film over in Emeryville.

The second is from Pete Docter's "inside the mind" film, reportedly entitled The Inside Out, and gives us a close-up look at the protagonist, a young girl, and the emotions inside her head, which will serve as characters in the film. Docter will no doubt blow us away once again just as he did with Monsters, Inc. and Up.

This final piece of artwork showcases Lee Unkrich's upcoming feature, which revolves around the Mexican holiday of Dia de los Muertos - Day of the Dead. Clearly, this is going to be one of Pixar's most vibrant, colorful, and (ironically) lively films ever.

So now we've got all these incredibly intriguing projects up ahead, but before they get here, let's enjoy this new year (and Monsters University). It's been a great year, and I wish you all the best in 2013!

Happy New Year from Pixar Corner!
